In Hong Kong, a right-hand-drive 1966 Ford Mustang convertible sits next to a Pagoda. That’s the nickname for the ’60s-era W113 Mercedes-Benz 230 SL with the concave roof that resembles “curved roofs of Far Eastern temples.” I honestly don’t know which 1960s “2+2" I find more beautiful.

The Mercedes is more elegant. The Mustang is more exciting. Both are lovely.

Are you feeling more Brahms or Beatles?
